WCCo based coating have a typical deposition efficieny (DE) by HVOF of about 35%. By using the light weight low density BoosT materials the advantage ia relevant: TiC-Fe nanostructured powder by MBN have a DE of 50% and thanks to the low density (60% less than WCCo) the desposition cost cost/m2 deposited is much decreased.
The application of green carbides on coating allows a massive cost saving up to 60%, compared to currently used materials, combined with advantage in using raw materials more environmentally and economically efficient.
The BoosT implemented process will result safer for operators, resource efficient, also demanding a low initial investment. At the same time, the final product will result durable and suitable for common recycling methodologies.
